balance that kind of conversation? the sort of nra crowd is saying this is just domestic violence, guns are unrelated. there are statistics out there saying guns make it more likely that it's going to turn deadly. how should that conversation sort of be balanced, do you think? >> i think you are absolutely right. when these things happen, it's too late. what i think is interesting is that the nras hold on the political conversation is actually breaking a little bit. the nra spent a lot of money in the last cycle. they went up against a lot of candidates, lost across the board. i'm hoping their control of the political conversation, i commend mayor bloomburg. he's investing a lot of money and trying to balance out the nra. he's had a lot of victory. it's an important effort. politics have become constrained and the ability to talk about it is constrained. there's a plug at the nra wheels. the less people fear that, politicians, political leaders, the more we engage in a conversation. maybe gun control wasn't the issue per se. background check or other issues. a broader conversation, does
really makes him qualified for job. the nra calls biden, in fact, the most anti-gun vice president in history. what an honor. by picking biden, the president is sending a very strong message. the task force will not roll over to play indicate the nra. vice president biden will do the job. president obama knows it. he did not speak in generalities today. he laid out a very clear agenda. >> a majority of americans support banning the sale of military-style assault weapons. a majority of americans support banning the sale of high capacity ammunition clips. a majority of americans support laws requiring background checks before all gun purchases so that criminals can't take advantage of legal loopholes to buy a gun from somebody who won't take the responsibility of doing a background check at all. i urge the new congress to hold votes on these measures on a timely manner. >> the president wants congress to hold votes on a assault weapons ban, a ban on high-capacity magazines and background checks for all guns and owners in order to get rid of the current loopholes in the law. all of th
-capacity magazines. we heard from joe manchin and joe warner, both with a-ratings with the nra. to ruth's point, chris, is there a chance that republicans could help to move them as well? >> well, i think so. i think we have seen that on the fiscal cliff issue. and the feeling here at the capitol, i've put the question to them and said, if gabby giffords, a congresswoman one of your own was almost fatally shot, and congress didn't react on gun control, what has to happen after this new event? this has changed the tenor. i was talking to a democratic leadership aide to made that point and also made the point when you have harry reid, if you remember in 2010, a tough re-election. the nra king just short of stopping him saying he was a friend of the second amendment. you have joe manchin and now mark warner. those are moderate democrats. they help bring republicans on board. maybe we would see movement. >> i want to bring in congressman yarmouth. >> good morning, chris. >> yesterday, you apologized for being silent on the issue for the last six years. what specifically do you think can get done no
area man in response to the nra's controversial plan to curb gun violence. >> complete bay area news coverage starts right now. >> good morning. welcome. it's saturday december 22nd. > pretty wild wake up call. let's get to rosemary and a quick look at what is happening outside. >> first we have allie who is standing by. >> told you it was a wild wake up call. what's happening? >> reporter: we have been out in the road since 4:30 and the rain hasn't let up. we are on cast ovally and redwood. we haven't seen drivers having a problem. the weather has caused problems on the road throughout the bay area. on 880 southbound, the driver of this truck crashed and ended up on its side. the driver said that the strong wind and rain caused him to loose control of the truck. on 580 the driver of this vehicle fled the scene of the crash after the car hit a tree. it happened during the heavy rainfall early this morning though chp doesn't know if weather was the only factor. for other drivers out in the roads, trying to get to their destination the stormy weather created an inconvenient mess. >
is this report about what is ahead in terms of the gun control fight. we heard from the nra friday. let me read you a few sentences -- that was nearly 20 years ago in 1993. we will hear from that testimony in a couple of minutes. we want to get your calls and what is ahead in gun-control. roy is joining us from north carolina, the independent line, good morning. caller: it could be a bitter fight but i think some drastic action needs to be taken. it should be at least as burdensome for the gun owner as it is for a car owner. registration, insurance, testing, everything -- handguns are a big problem, too. i think it is so bad that the president should do some kind of executive order and put a moratorium on military rifles, at least, because around here in western north carolina, there are gun shops and people waiting for four hours to get to this ar-15. they say they will not take it out of the box, the majority of them. they will either have it as an investment or have it grandfathered in. this is like undetectable poison. 300 million guns that have proliferated the whole country. we have plent
fear to speak out -- not against the nra -- to speak out against survivalists. to speak out against people that want to buy assault weapon, to speak out against people -- i mean, great. if you really do -- if you believe that james madison wrote the bill of rights so people would have the ability to squeeze off that many rounds and have these extended magazine clips, if that's your america living it, that's your america. god bless you. good luck with that. if you really believe the federal government's coming, you're going to kick down your doors, what are you going to do? are you going to shoot that weapon up at the drone? lots of luck. it's not going to help you. but that's where they're positioning themselves. they don't speak out against the slaughter of 20 young children and doing anything about that because they're afraid they may offend sur vooifrlivivalists an rushing out going to walmart and buying assault weapons. they're not going to stand up to so many of these extreme forces. and mark halperin, it's killing them because, again, you look at the cnn poll. their branding's

on that banner says, nra killing our kids. this is the first news conference the nra held since the mass shooting that we first told you about last friday. wayne laperriere, ceo of nra. he will amid this first statement when the disruption took place. one of the big questions, moving forward into the new year, what will the task force created by president obama come up with, when it comes to the future potentially of gun control in this country. and how will the nra respond? according to some initial reports it seemed that the nra said they were going to come out with their own proposal and hopefully work in the process. let's go ahead and listen to wayne laperriere. >> by an unknown number of genuine monsters. people that are so deranged, so evil, so possessed by voices and driven by demons, that no sane person can ever possibly comprehend them. they walk among us every single day. and does anybody really belief that the next adam lanza isn't planning his attack on a school? he is already identified at this very moment? how many more copycats are waiting in the wings for their moment of fame? fr
been associated with the nra and indicated their new openness to gun laws have not been the house republicans who would have to vote on a measure. i think it continues to be a very tough task in washington to get federal legislation through the house, that the president could sign on, and not impossible, but i just don't see the kind of movement and outrage that we have seen elsewhere reflected in that important body. now, we do have the nra having a press conference on friday, promising to propose measures. that could be very significant, if they did something, some significant movement that might encourage republican legislators to move on this as well. i think it is a tough battle and that's one reason the white house has been pretty gingerly -- moved gingerly in laying out exactly what it is the president is willing to do. >> lynn, as you know, jay carney said yesterday the president would actively support dianne feinstein's deal to ban assault weapons. he also used the phrase 16 times. how do you balance issues like this? you have the fiscal cliff, you have the new cabinet, t
with him. appreciate it. the n.r.a.'s wayne lapierre caused a stir when he suggested armed guards at schools. do we really need that? do we need to put armed guards in the schools? we'll ask a former d.e.a. agent about that and we'll ask about a plan of his own later in this hour. the economy means one thing for retailers, slower holiday sales for the week ending 15th. down 4.#%. adam you have been looking at this. >> part of it is hurricane sandy and part of it's the tragedy from newtown, connecticut. david: people are afraid to go out and shop? >> they're not in the mood. one quote in an article talk people think it's better to spend time with family. shopper tracker is finding that people shopping for the week that ended december 15th down 4.3%. overall they've adjusted what they think the holiday seen will be. and they've adjusted that it will be a growth of 2.5%. and thought it would be 3.3%. national retail federation is keeping their prediction of growth 4.1%. real quick, i don't know if we have the graphic available. if you invest in retailer, boy have the on-line retailer
correct and partially wrong. it looks like the nra's proposal is a lot like exactly what happened after 9/11. immediately though grabbed any federal agent they could to throw them on the planes and later on they put together a really poorly implemented program to arm pilots. and not very many volunteered for the program. i can see the reality. look. he is right in some regard. if someone shows up at a school and there is an armed principal and armed guard clearly that is not going to happen it's unseasonable for starters. it is impractical. let alone the safety implications that come out of all of this. did it work in the skies though? >> well, could argue that it is working because there hasn't been an incident but it looks like every time an american aircraft that gets hijacked there hasn't been any air marshals or both planes that have in iad's on board most of them didn't have armed marshals on them and i don't think there were any armed pilots on them either. so, the air marshall program alone is a billion-dollar program. and the armed pilots program is a lot of the pilots believe it
contributions to the debate about gun control. in the first statement from the nra since the connecticut school shooting the nra says and i'm quoting in part the national rifle association of america is made up of four million moms and dads, sons and daughters and we are shocked, saddened, and heartbroken by the news of the horrific and senseless murders in newtown. the nra says it will not comment on the newtown school shooting. immediately they did not out of respect for the families and as a matter of common decency. the nra says it wants to be part of the national dialogue to make sure the tragedy like that doesn't happen again. make sure you stay right here with us on ktvu for more coverage about the connecticut school shooting. coming up we'll take you back live to newtown, connecticut. we'll hear what it has been like for the students there who went back to school and what is complicating the investigation to figure out why the gunman did what he did. >> i can't imagine heading back to school. >>> time now 5:39. sal is covering traffic. where you starting? >> we are starting this morning
opposition. details ahead. plus, the head of the n.r.a. making the first public statement since the sandy hook elementary school shooting amid protests there. his plea to put armed guards inside schools coming up. >> the united states marine held in mexico for an technique gun set to walk through today. all ahead, unless breaking news changes everything. this is "studio b." first from fox at 3:00, president obama revealing his choice to be the next secretary of state today nominating senator john kerry to that job. many analysts had already called it washington's worst kept secret. if confirmed senator john kerry takes on a key role in the national security team during the second term. senator john kerry would replace the current secretary of state, hillary clinton, who will step down early next year. this afternoon, president obama calling senator kerry an exemplary public servant. >> we turn the page on a decade of war he knows we have to harness american power and ensure they work telling, diplomatic and development, economic and political, military and intelligence, as well as the pow

of the nra, standing by his comments about preventing similar mass curse. >> if it's crazy to call for putting police and armed security in our school to protect our children, then call me crazy. i will tell you what the american people, i think the american people think it is crazy not to do it. it is not going to make any kids safer. we have to get to the real problem, the real causes and that's what the nra is trying to do. there are so many different ways to evade that if you had that. you had that for 10 years when dianne feinstein passed the ban in '94. columbine occurred right in the middle of it. it didn't make any difference. i think that is phony piece of legislation and i do not believe it will pass for this reason. it is all built on lies that have been found out. heather: gun control advocates equally adamant about their position. here's democratic senator charles schumer. >> he was so extreme and so tone deaf, not even saying that guns had any part of the problem. that he actually probably helped us as we tried to pass sensible gun legislation in the congress. now he
is the nra to deal with on these issues? i mean, talk about the power that the nra wields. >> look, i think actually the nra's power is more perceived than real, alex. when i heard the news yesterday and like jimmy, i grew up with a rifle. i grew up in pennsylvania. we went hunting. we never had handguns around but we had a rifle in the house. and we used it for hunting. that was it. but i think a lot of us who were in the hunting community have much more tolerance for stricter regulation of the handguns and especially certain kinds of handguns than most people per sooechlt and i think you see that in the polling. when i heard the news yesterday as a father of two children who i send out to public school here in washington, d.c. every day, a city that has outlawed guns but still has a very high crime rate, and the husband of a public schoolteacher, i just wanted to see my wife and two kids as quickly as possible and hug them and know that they're okay. like all other parents, i think, in the country, including the president felt when we heard the news yesterday. >> well, i can echo that. i
and we think that responsible gun owners are criminals. we'll come for your guns. >> the nra fearmongering against obama. >> sure. we don't have to give them an easy out. by invading people's privacy. we are stoking fear in this instance. >> we are not stoking fear. the nra does that. they're whole jb. >> s.e. over here trying to say something. i agree with steve and toure. >> no, no. >> whoa! >> get her on the line. >> didn't see it coming. >> you are outvoted. >> sorry. >> i don't think she'll ever take a day off again. >>> up next, best selling author of "the black swan" is here to teach us all how to be anti-fragile. when you have diabetes... your doctor will say get smart about your weight. that's why there's glucerna hunger smart shakes. they have carb steady, with carbs that digest slowly to help minimize blood sugar spikes.

with that. >> well, here is the problem, kelly, with the nra's position. first, they're tone he have did. the public since newtown, or even before turned rather substantially against the idea of allowing assault weapons to be purchased, to allow assault ammo to be purchased. they're factually wrong. the fact is more children are killed accidentally with guns around the house than have been killed in school shootings since 1960 by far. third, you know, it is just defies common sense. people, if you put a guard at a door, what about the other doors of a school? how about the fort hood shooting? the nra had talks about only way you take on a bad guy is a good guy with a gun. fort hood was mobbed with good guys with guns yet, one guy, very determined who took a lot of those soldiers out. so, look, obviously there countries that have mental illness, that have video games, they don't have the problems with guns the united states has. that is the big variable. and, i really think that the public is becoming pretty fed up with the notion that somehow or other we should throw up our hands and do
. much has been brought up about gun control. the nra has been silent, but that changes today. doug is live in washington. they're going to have a press conference today, right? >> they are. we're going to hear directly from them about what happened last week. the president also and perhaps much of the nation will observe a moment of silence this morning to mark one week since the horrific killings at sandy hook elementary school last week. just as the national rifle association prepares to publicly respond to new gun control efforts, the president is also addressing what the administration says is the fastest growing effort they've ever seen on they're we the people petition site with more than 400,000 signature, they say, to back forms of new gun control legislation. the president took to youtube to send a message to congress. >> i called on congress to take up and pass common sense legislation that has the support of a majority of the american people, including banning the sale of military style assault weapons and high capacity ammunition clips and making sure criminals can't ta

"america's news headquarters" live from the nation's capital starts now. >>> early this week the national rifle association broke its silence on the tragedy at sandy hook. i think the best way to prevent a future masacre is to put armed guards in schools. this morning the nra showed no signs of backing down from that idea. peter doosey is here with the story. >> that's right, doug. the national rifle associati
quote. the nra is made up of four million moms and dads, sons and daughters, and we were shocked, sad, heartbroken by the news of the horrific and senseless murders in newtown. the nra is prepared to offer meaningful contributions to help make sure this never happens again. nra saying it will hold a news conference on friday, one week to the day after the school shootings. martha: and the gun industry itself is facing an extreme backlash as a result of all of this and it is feeling it in the bottom lines. shares of major gun makers have dropped in the wake of the sandy hook shootings and the owner of the company that makes one of the weapons used in that tragedy says that they have decided to get out of the gun business. interesting developments here that reverberate all the way to wall street. stuart varney is the anchor of "varney & company" on the fox business network. stuart, how is tall this playing out in these companies? >> martha, there is a long list of backlash developments. start with this. cheaper than dirt.com, one of the largest internet gun sellers just announced it is
of the nra, like myself, believe in guns, responsibility, and accountability. and we try to teach that and we try to tell anybody who asks about it, that's the way we feel. >> reporter: they tell me here that the sale of the firearms are up dramatically this week. >> a lot of people are concerned about recent events, what may take place if the say salt ban comes back. people are definitely buying things that they wanted to buy in the past. they are doing it a little faster probably. >> reporter: appearing on wtop radio, bob mcdonnell answer ad question saying it is time to discuss allowing school officials to carry firearms on campus. if people were armed, not just a police officer, but other school officials that were trained and chose to have a weapon, certainly there would be an opportunity to stop an individual trying to get into the school. responding to the governor, virginia congressman jerry conolly tweeted bob mcdon alleges suggestion that armed teachers could have stopped newtown tragedy is outrageous. guns don't belong if schools. >> i don't have any policy or recommendation that i
to the nra or anybody that says, hey, this isn't the problem, if it's not the problem, it will make a difference, it should make a difference banning them. let's err on the side of caution, keep the kids safe. thank you. >> let me also echo again my appreciation for commissioner dr. joe marshall because omega boys club has been a great partner. they are part of our effort to organize commutes, to intervene as early as we can, and i totally agree with the chief that these particular guns, if you look at them up front and close, you'll see they really shouldn't be in anybody's homes. they're designed to kill folks. many of them military style. i think to bring home the real story here is dr. andrei campbell of our san francisco general hospital, and also on staff at ucsf. he is at the forefront of world class trauma center that we have. and if you go day to day, and certainly with the 67 homicides that we have with the numbers of bodies that were showing up and people have shown up, many of which he saved, many of which he couldn't save that were victims of bullets and violence and gu
following this shooting. >> shame on the nra! >> gun control advocates protested outside of the offices in washington, d.c. the nra has not releasedny statements since the -- released any statements since the shooting and its facebook page has disappeared following other mass shootings. >>> new this morning, a private equity company where the california teachers' pension fund keeps some of its money. it says this will sell its stake to a gun manufacturer. yesterday, the teachers' pension fund said it was reviewing its investment in the private equity firm following the school shooting. >>> two people were seriously hurt in oakland after being -- after being hit by a car. the man and woman were hit in the crosswalk. they were later rushed to the hospital. the driver did stop and is cooperating with police. >>> very busy san francisco mall was evacuated. a fire broke out in a restaurant. firefighters were called to the westfield san francisco center on market street about 8:15 last night. firefighters found smoke in the building. it was coming from a flue fire. they quickly put tut the --
guard at every school in the country? that's what the nra told me last week. >> i'm not going to prejudge the recommendations that are given to me. i am skeptical that the only answer is putting more guns in schools. and i think the vast majority of the american people are skeptical that that somehow is going to solve our problem. here is the bottom line. we're not going to get this done unless the american people decide it's important. so this is not going to be simply a matter of on me spending political capital. one of the things that you learn and i have now been in this office for four years is the old adage of abraham lincoln. with public opinion, there's nothing you can't do. and without public opinion, there's very little you can get done in this town. so i'm going to be putting forward a package and i'm going to be putting my full weight behind it and is i'm going to be making an argument to the american people about why this is important and why we have to do everything we can to make sure that something like what happened at sandy hook elementary does not happen aga
've got to do things differently. >> what about the nra? president obama: the nra is an organization that has members who are mothers and fathers. and i would suspect they have been impacted by this as well. hopefully they will do some self reflection. herhere's what we know. any single gun law can solve all these problems. we will have to look at mental health issues, schools, a whole range of things that joe's group looks at. we know issues of gun safety will be an element of it. and what we've seen over the last 20 years, 15 years is the sense that anything related to guns is somehow an encroachment on the second amendment. what we're looking for here is a thoughtful approach that says we can preserve our second amendment, we can make sure that responsible gun owners are able to carry out their activities, but we will actually be serious about the safety side of this, that we will be serious about making sure that something like newtown or a roa aurora doesn'tn again. visit a good chunk of space from what the second amendment means and having no rules at all. that is what joe is g
% of nra members support solutions like that. unfortunately, sometimes this plays out as a polarized political debate in segments like the one i was part of also on friday night, but the reality is the american public isn't polarized. the only place this is a polarized political debate is in congress. we need to take the voice of the american people who know that, as president obama said tonight, we can be better than this and hold our leaders accountable. >> very interesting to me. this is almost a mirror tragedy of what happened in britain in 1996 and scotland, 16 young 5 and 6-year-old children were killed. it was the worst shooting of its type in modern american history, and as a result, a full handgun ban was brought in. which would not be applicable here, there are too many in circulation. but what was most notable about the debate, it was completely non-political. my question for you, steve, is why does this have to be political? why can it not just be a bipartisan, all encompassing, american dialogue, which leads in the end to pragmatic solution? >> i agree with your last sta
weapons. other senators have voiced their support for such legislation. but n-r-a c-e-o wayne lapierre is dismissing any bans on assault weapons and made clear yesterday it was highly unlikely that the n- r-a would support any new gun regulations. meanwhile, demonstrators marched over new york city's brooklyn bridge demanding tighter gun laws in the country. several hundred people participated in the march. carrying candles, the protestors stopped in the middle of the iconic bridge to read the names of the children and adults killed at sandy hook elementary school in connecticut. >> an afghan police official says an afghan policewoman has killed an american adviser at the kabul police headquarters. the deputy police chief says an investigation is underway to determine whether the killing was intentional or accidental. the victim was a military or civilian adviser. the nato military command says it's looking into reports of the shooting but had no other information. >> hawaii is saying goodbye to a much-respected native son. daniel inouye. president obama attended inouye's funeral yeste
nuanced position on this issue in general. you know, i think the nra, gun owners of america go too far in imposing any kind of restriction on gun rights. they think you should be able to own anything in any number and carry it in any place at any time, and that i disagree with but what i would say is let's leave the constitution out this because i think that's a complicated argument as well. what i would say is if you want to infringe on liberty and say you can't do x, y or z, i think the burden of proof has to be on you for why there's a societal need for infringing on that liberty. i've looked into this because i'm sort of on the fence on the issue. i looked back at the 2008 landmark supreme court case about the handgun ban in d.c. justice breyer who was a dissenter in the case and considered a liberal justice looked at the evidence for whether a ban on handguns reducing violence and said that the upshot is a stet of studies and counterstudies that at most leave a judge uncertain about the proper policy conclusions. basically, you know, it's a very mixed bag as to whether totally eli
